years, will note this, accent is abcush. this is not the way obama talks. it is not the way he has talked in scores of peaches i have watched him give, or public appearances viseen him make. this is a put-on. that's one. second issue, he is telling a predominantly black audience something very clear-- the federal government doesn't like you because you are black -- [overlapping dialogue] >> sean: that's what he is saying. >> they don't like you because you are black. that's the theme from front to back, from beginning to endful they don't like you because of your skin can remember. that's a shockingly -- a nasty think this to say, a devicive thing to say, in the case of katrina, it's untrue. at the moment he utters those words, you are getting short-changed in the katrina reconstruction funds. the government had pledged $110 billion, two weeks before this speech, the bush administration gave the katrina-affected areas $7 billion with no strings attached. he was a sitting senator. he knew that and he said that anything -- anyway. >> sean: he is saying they don't care as much about y
he delivers this speech? >> this accent is absurd. this is not the way obama talks. in is not a dog whistle. this is a dog siren. >> it's incendiary -- >> yes, it's just about as incendiary as two white dudes debates how black is too black in a black man's speech. indeed, fox ran with it all the way into the morning on "fox and friends". >> we watched president obama for 3 hchl years. i don't think he's governed in a race this way at all. i think that was going to be an issue. should have been an issue in '08. does anyone think president obama is more towards one race? i don't think so. >> roger rails would like to see you in his office. joining us right now, let's get to our panel here in denver, mike shira, "time" magazine, white house correspondent, who has the cover story in this week's issue. john harwood, cnbc chief white house correspondent, and holding it down in new york city, msnbc political analyst karen finney. john, are you there in the spin room. as you know, the spinning begins before either candidate has spoken. we've seen both parties attempt to deflate expectations
. >> , nothing at all. let's talk about this video. it is controversial video release last night. obama speaking as a candidate five years ago to a room full of black ministers. here's what he had to say. >> what's happening down in your list? where is your dollar? where is your stafford act money? it makes no sense. it tells me that somehow the people down in norman's don't care about as much. gerri: so the candidates saying the federal government does not care about black people as much as they care about white people. >> and he's lying about the figures, even as sitting senator. he should have known that $100 billion has been sent to the katrina victims six months earlier. that was five times more than new york got in disaster relief after tom sullivan, but this is exactly the point of my book. we were almost passed the racial turmoil and demagoguery of the 70's and 80's. the real civil rights battles were over, and then obama brings it all back. gerri: maybe i'm just my youth, but i really believe that having obama as president, as a black american would bring us together, would make things
are being characterized by critics as racially charged. bill: here is the video when candidate obama talks about the stafford act. >> when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waived the stafford act, said this is too serious a problem. we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own. forget that dollar you have got to put in. here is $10. that was the right thing to do. when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said look at this devastation, we don't expect you to come up with your own money here. here the money to rebuild. we are not going to wait for to you scratch it together because you are part of the american family. what as happening down in new orleans? where is your dollar? where is your stafford act money? makes no sense. tells me the built hasn't been taken out. [applause] tells me that somehow the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. bill: also in the crowd that day was the reverend jeremiah wright. mike emanuel is live in washington. reverand wright became a controversial figure during the 2008 campaign. what did then senator obama say about hi
released to the media and did not get much attention at the time. but here is then candidate obama talking to a crowd mostly made up much black ministers about federal fund and hurricane katrina victims. >> when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waived the stafford act. said this is too big of a problem. we can't expect -- that was the right thing to do. when hurricane andrew struck in florida people said look at this devastation. we don't expect to you come up with your own money. here is the money to rebuild. we are not going to wait for you to scratch it together because you are part of the american family. what's happening down in new orleans? where is your dollar? where is your stafford act money? makes no sense. tells me the built hasn't been taken out. [applause] tells me somehow the people down in new orleans they don't care about as much. megyn: tucker carlson is editor of "the daily caller." welcome to you both. tucker, i'm trying to make sure i understand. that excerpt that we just played was an ad-lib by then candidate obama that was made in part of a speech that the written
channel yesterday. it features presidential candidate barack obama talking to an african-american audience back in 2007, about victims of hurricane katrina. first, let's listen to the clip. >> contains some of the most divisive class warfare and racially charged rhetoric ever used by barack obama. >> people asked me whether race was the reason response was so slow. i said this administration was color-blind in its incompetence. but -- but, everyone here knows that the disaster and the poverty happened long before the hurricane hit. >> now, nbc and several other media outlets also covered this speech back in 2007. so mollet, what did your listeners have to say on this? >> in large part, they said, who thought this was a good idea. and they're saying it actually could backfire for the conservatives here, because if a republican could fail, as was perceived back then, george bush, failed people who were most in need, goes back to the 47% comment, the undecided voters, middle class, those people who have admitted today they've needed government assistance, if a republican could fail those peop
barack obama talking to back clergy -- black clergy. do you think those are come up and do you think the tapes negate each other? >> reporter: i don't know. i tend to think this stuff tends to be noised. whether it's information from months ago or years ago, or tapes that are unearthed suddenly out of the blue. i kind of think it rides on the basic stuff going in, in this case, on the economy. though it's not a subject of this particular debate, what's going on in the middle east. those arguments prevail. now, obviously, if an opponent can work a tape or embarrassment in the news to his advantage in framing a question or an answer, i could be alone on this, i just don't think it will matter. the economy will matter. people watching at home will try to size these guys up as to who has the best prescription. whether we want government to keep doing what it's doing or scale back what it's doing. whether the debt comes up, whether it's too much too fast. i think it comes back to a subject dear to me, the meat and potatoes, and that's it. >> that's what they'll be talking about tonight, t
? he can't. >> eric: you know what else president obama can't do is talk about which entitlement he will cut to bring the deficit down which he promised four years ago. >> andrea: i don't think president obama has a leg to stand on when it comes to entitlements. in the last four years he created a giant new entitlement that will put the onerous taxes on the middle class. i think he has to keep president obama on defense all night. i've talked to a lot of people and they say the entire debate is about romney. romney needs to play to win. while president obama needs to play not to lose. as long as he can keep him on defense, which he can. the facts are on romney's side. i talked to a senior advisor and just saw the candidate, he is calm and in great spirits ready to go. >> bob: that is what they always say before debates. if you abandon your own vice president medicare proposals? >> dana: they answered that. >> bob: how so? >> andrea: i don't think he will let himself get trapped in the details, bob. he will take it to the president. the facts are on his side. all he has to do is brin
. the bombshell of the widely covered speech at hampton university features senator obama talking about the federal government's response to hurricane katrina. >> when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said look at this devastation. we didn't expect you to come up with the almighty hand. down in new orleans, where's your dollar? makes no sense. tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. >> conservative pundits defined this as racial rhetoric obama makes the point that problem's actions were not racial bias. >> look at what happened in new orleans and the gulf coast when katrina hit. people asked me if they thought race was the reason the response was so slow. no, this administration was color-blind in its incompetence, but everyone here knows that the disaster and the poverty happened long before the hurricane hit. >> while the video does, perhaps, notding the president' at re-election, dusting off the vintage tape does return the focus to the man the gop wishes would actually disappear or shape shift into a nonhuman form. president george w. bush. >> if the republicans want to
, but a senior obama campaign adviser talked about it this morning. >> if the republicans want to defend the bush administration's response, i'm sure the president would give him time during the debate to do that. >> an attempt to change the subject from romney's comments made in a video that surfaced last month. he said 47% of americans are dependent on the government. tara for cbs news, the white house. >> now we should note that the romney campaign says it had nothing to do with the release of that video tape. or the rerelease of the video tape of that speech since it happened five years ago and was covered at the time. but joining me now here at u.s.a. today election headquarters is paul singer. he is politics editor and he'll be taking part in the fact check that will keep you up to date on what's going on in that debate tonight. you have poll numbers that have been rolling over, giving us an idea of who is up and who is doing. show it to us on the computer. >> we have this poll tracker which we have built with our partners. it gives you the opportunity to go through and see in t
at the debate hall. president obama's expected to arrive in denver any minute as well. we'll be talking with top supporters of each candidate. the former new york city mayor rudy giuliani, he'll join us live this hour. also we'll be hearing from both candidates' wives in special cnn interviews. today, by the way, is the obama's 20th wedding anniversary. so what's it like spending the night with the romneys? i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." >>> 34 days from the presidential election but much more importantly right now at least right now we've reached what may be the most decisive night of the 2012 campaign, the first presidential debate at the university of denver. after weeks of downplaying expectations, mitt romney's campaign insiders are finally opening up about what they really think can be accomplished tonight. cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta is in denver getting ready to set the scene. jim. >> reporter: wolf, the romney campaign sees the polls moving in their directions. one of the top priorities tonight is to maintain that trajectory. the romney campaign
barack obama can be heard praising his former pastor jeremiah wright. he talked in his speech about wanting to him all this sorts of help to poor people. then candidate obama was talking about iraq war veterans with post traumatic stress disorder. but i'm sure it's better politics for the right if they shorthand iraq war veterans as poor people while also calling mr. obama angry and describing him as having an accent. it's not subtle but i'm
. then candidate obama was talking about iraq war veterans with post traumatic stress disorder. but i'm sure it's better politics for the right if they shorthand iraq war veterans as poor people while also calling mr. obama angry and describing him as having an accent. it's not subtle but i'm sure they think it's great politics. so tonight has been an unsettled big night. tomorrow night is going to make tomorrow look like a traffic
obama's talked about reducing the corporate rate to 28%, but he hasn't specified how he'd pay for it. and then you have the issue of jobs. romney talks about the job record on net from the beginning of president obama's term. and if you do that, it's just about even. maybe a few jobs in the positive territory. but barack obama talks about what's happened since early 2010 since the turnaround started. they'll clash on that. on medicare, the big entitlement spending issue that threatens the bunch the long term. mitt romney's proposed with paul ryan an ambitious reformation of the program that would go to voucher, but he hasn't said what the level of the voucher would be or the growth rate in the voucher. if you don't specify that, you can't specify what your savings will be or the impact on consumers. and finally president obama last year in the grand bargain talks with house speaker boehner talked about more ambitious proposals than medicare than he's advocated so far like raising the eligibility age from 65 to 67. hasn't said a word about that in the election campaign so far. you can
to that question we just talked about obama will say, no, answer that question and that will generate an exciting back and forth and make for a great debate. sfeefrnlt it all goes down that way. james, thank you so much. have fun in denver. >>> coming up, former pennsylvania governor ed rendell joins me live what does he make of the new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll shows president obama and governor romney tied with a among voters would an interest in the leeks. >>> earlier today, the president tweeted 20 years ago today, i married the love of my life and my best friend. happy anniversary, michelle. first lady, twitter replay, thank you for being an incredible partner, friend and father every day. i love you. "ever ask somebody to lend you a foot?" "who thinks about stuff like that?" "vince mahe grew up on two continents... and noticed that wherever you go, people have their hands full, but their feet free." "the result? a liftgate you operate with your foot." "code name?" "open sesame" "the all new twenty thirteen ford escape. it's what happens when you go further." >>> our special prime
. [applause] i will be able to talk to president obama in a way no one else can about how the economy works. we are one nation under god. >> that did become a debate moments in this primary season. >> right. it is an interesting moment. it is a moment i think may replicate itself in general election debates. i cannot imagine obama will let this question and the tax returns go unremarked. what you see there is a couple of things. romney really pivots. he uses the initial question to swing us over to obama and the democrats and how they are against wealth, supposedly. there is also the reaction from the audience. one of the thing that was striking about this year's round of primary debates was the role of that live audience and how they became the influence and how people are perceiving them. in general election debates, the audiences seem to be much more behave. clearly, the audience played a big part in the whole tone of that clip you showed. >> warren decker, these candidates have lines and talking points. how you come across conversationally rather than sound like somebody who is regurgit
barack obama like you have never seen these days. we will talk a little bit more about that. frankie valli joins us on couch. hey! did you know that honey nut cheerios has oats that can help lower cholesterol? and it tastes good? sure does! wow. it's the honey, it makes it taste so... well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be healthy. >> 8 minutes before the hour. final preparations are underway for the first presidential debate tonight. peter doocy joins us live from washington with more. hi there, peter. >> as you know mitt romney and president obama do a lot of talking about each other at rallies and in interviews and they hardly ever have anything positive to say. tonight they will have a chance to say whatever it is they want to their opponent's face for the first time. tonight's debate in denver will be moderateed by jim leerer and will be split up between 6 segments the first focused on nt economy followed by lines of questioning about other dop stick policy issues including healthcare and since both sides know there will be ten's of millions of voters
to his nostrils and say, boop. for instance, when obama is talking during the debate i'll interrupt him and say that's what she said? ha, ha, ha. gets them every time. last week, my campaign leaked a memo telling everyone to lower expectations for my performance in these debates. as we all know barack obama is an extremely gifted speaker. you might even say he's a master debater. that's what she said? you got zing. you got zing. >> i don't know, man. fallen is giving zadakas a run for his moment on this romney impression. >>> here's the latest. >> mr. president, china is demanding that the u.s. pay back its debt in full immediately. failure to do so will bring on financial apocalypse. you need to look into that camera and convince the people of china we are good to pay back that debt. >> why you got to play me like that, china? when you loan that money to my predecessors, did you really think you were going to get it back? >> china's not budging but we have just had the results back from your latest presidential physical and it tornadoes out you have telepathic powers. look into that ca

? >> the president obama looks nothing like the candidate obama. he talked about lowering the deficit in half, not redistributing wealth. and not, as he said, hurting the taxpayer and getting rid of broad and things like that. i think these economists look at numbers and they see reality, they feature $6 trillion in debt. and they figure it is time to move on. neil: having said that, they seem to have crunched the numbers and looked on the weakness of this recovery and concluded maybe a fresh start is in order. but doesn't factor in a smart money angle that we are missing? smart money seems to be saying that there is not much money for this recovery to be had. >> will look at their records. we have president obama who hasn't had any experience in the private sector and we have governor romney who does understand. america, yes, we do need a ceo in chief. we also need someone who understands that the business leadership to be able to broker and work in washington where there is a lot of polarized politics. governor romney is adjusting policies that democrats and republicans can agree. we need t
a double job. he's got to talk to those swing voters who are disaffected about president obama, but then make sure his base turns out and he's got to get the base enthusiastic. now, what the base wants and those swing voters want maybe two different things. >> but how many people are still undecided? >> this many. >> but there are still people who are persuadable. >> have debates really persuaded them. >> john kerry, going into that first debate, was seven points behind. after that first debate, he was only two points behind. now, we know he ended up losing because president bush came back and did a better job in the second debate. but it did narrow the gap for john kerry. >> we're learning that mitt romney's debate preparations get kind of mean at times. we're going to hear from michelle obama and ann romney on their debate advice. one of them gets moesh. we'll be right back. ♪ (train horn) vo: wherever our trains go, the economy comes to life. norfolk southern. one line, infinite possibilities. and the candidate's speech is in pieces all over the district. the writer's desk
to be talking about the debates for the rest of the show. barack obama and mitt romney, the rumble in the rookies. >> did you just make that up? because i love it. the rumble in the rockies. >> somebody will be talking about the meltdown in the mile high city tomorrow. we'll just keep the i il lit reaction going. i've been on the show before, seen a bunch of these debates. there's a debate about the debates going on about whether or not debates matter. do you think debates matter? call here at 866-55-press. give us a call, let us know, do you think that debates matter? >> this morning as we talk about debates, i can't help thinking about what's going on with mitt romney right now, mitt romney running for president and for most of his campaign been talking about one single issue the economy the economy, the economy. >> i think president obama is talking about something else that's bigger, leadership. mitt romney hasn't been talking about leadership. the thing that happens in these debates is do they give us a moment, do they give us one particular moment where we know that the argum

at your watch. >> bob: they are talking about him practicing zingers against obama. be careful. where's the beef which i'm proud of or what reagan did to mondale, unless the context is up, put a bumper sticker to make them understand clearly you have to be good to do that. i'm not sure romney should do it. romney should take it to obama and take it hard. i think obama will duck and not take it to romney. >> greg: simple advice for romney, tell the truth. the facts are on his side. style versus substance. >> bob: i do think that obama will ask romney to explain the tax plan. ryan said it was too complicated to explain. >> eric: obama is not going to ask romney anything. >> bob: listen, they all end up asking each other questions. >> eric: what i would do if i'm romney, no matter what they ask, just go right back to the economy. just go right back to the economy. throw numbers out there. just stay on this. >> andrea: going tough and hard. but he can't go too hard and too tough, then the media says he's angry, now he's an angry rich man. >> bob: come up with the numbers you talk about. o
himself covered it in 2007. >> barack obama was talking about a quiet riot today. it was not a reference to '80s heavy metal band unfortunately. the senator waded into the controversial waters of race at a university in virginia. done little to quell a brewing storm. compared it to what fueled the l.a. riots. >> tucker carlson worked for msnbc back in the day. even the headline in 2007, obama, quiet riot, could erupt like l.a. riots. editorial director of the nation national, welcome, ron. desperate from that 47% thing, is this tape important in any way? >> reporter: i think probably not very significant for several reasons. you point out one of them. this was hardly a secret tape. it's in the tape library of most of the networks, including cnn. it was a publicly covered event. it was discussed not only with tucker but on fox. abc talked about it. two other points maybe more important than the fact that it was widely shared, what he said is not that remarkable for a democratic politician, in particular, white or black. the idea that an absence of opportunity and kind of sense of hopeless
voters? 21% that you are talking about? >> a lot of them will be president obama supporters. that's to me, just incredible. you look at inner city. the inner cities of this country are -- for the most part going to be voting for president obam a. yet they have a 50% unmome -- employment rate. you explain that to me. >> sean: >> greta: one thing, i have seen neither candidate go to the inner cities. they go to the swing states, although a loot of swing states have the so-called inner city. but i don't see either candidate talking about the inner cities at all. >> president obama has done nothing for the inner city. so the various inner cities, and there are plenty of them and they are all in trouble. so it's amazing to me how he is getting most of those votes. >> greta: what will have more viewers "the apprentice" or the debate? >> the debates will be amazing. i am going on europe and i postponed it until 12:00 because i want to see the debate. this debate -- and by the way, "the apprentice" has been a real juggernaut. it's ark mazing. but this debate will have tremendous viewership. peopl
